With a range of new RHA fillers available, board-certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons can help you achieve a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
About RHA Fillers
RHA fillers are a collection of FDA-approved injectable fillers made from resilient hyaluronic acid. These fillers are specifically designed to treat dynamic facial wrinkles and folds that occur due to facial expressions and movements. Unlike most fillers, RHA fillers are formulated to closely resemble the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin, allowing for a smoother integration with the skin’s natural structure.
The RHA collection includes three types of fillers: RHA®2, RHA®3, and RHA®4, with each targeting different wrinkle depths and treatment areas. RHA®2 is ideal for natural lip plumping and filling mild wrinkles and fine lines, while RHA®3 targets deeper wrinkles around the nasolabial area, lip corners, and jowls. RHA®4 is designed to provide volume for deep wrinkles in the cheeks or jowls.
The RHA filler treatment is a quick and minimally invasive procedure, typically taking 15 to 25 minutes to complete. The fillers contain lidocaine for numbing, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient.
RHA Fillers for Lip Augmentation and Perioral Wrinkles
RHA fillers are an excellent option for individuals seeking lip augmentation and the treatment of perioral wrinkles, also known as lipstick lines or smoker’s lines. RHA Redensity™ is specifically designed for fine lines and dynamic wrinkles around the mouth, providing natural-looking results that adapt to the dynamic movements of the lips.
RHA Redensity™ for Dynamic Wrinkles
RHA Redensity™ stands out as the sole FDA-approved HA filler specifically designed to address dynamic lipstick lines. RHA Redensity™ has also been deemed the “Best Professional-Grade Treatment” Shape Skin Award for its impressive results. A few notable advantages of RHA Redensity™ include:
- Smoothing delicate lines around the lips
- Affords a natural look and feel when used to treat lipstick lines
- Effectively addresses “lip-pursing” and other dynamic expressions
With RHA Redensity™, patients can expect a natural-looking outcome that enhances their overall aesthetic by smoothing out dynamic lines.
Long-Lasting Results with RHA Fillers
One of the key benefits of RHA fillers is their long-lasting results. Depending on the patient’s age, lifestyle, and treatment area, RHA Redensity™ can last up to 12 months, while RHA 2, 3, and 4 can last up to 15 months with optimal treatment. This extended duration allows patients to enjoy their rejuvenated appearance for an extended period, saving both time and money.
To maintain the best possible results, it is essential to follow the aftercare instructions and schedule touch-up appointments as needed. Touch-up visits can help ensure that your RHA filler treatment continues to provide natural-looking and continuous results.
Ideal Candidates for RHA Fillers
While RHA fillers are suitable for many individuals, the ideal candidates for this treatment are those who:
- Have moderate to severe dynamic facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, radial cheek lines, and perioral wrinkles
- Are seeking a natural-looking solution for lip augmentation or facial contouring
- Prefer a non-surgical approach to treat moderate to severe wrinkles
- Have realistic expectations about the results and understand the limitations of injectable fillers
Procedure Overview: RHA Fillers Treatment Process
The Naderi Center’s RHA fillers treatment procedure is intended to provide patients with a comfortable and efficient experience. The procedure typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to discuss treatment goals and expectations
- Evaluation of the patient’s facial anatomy and skin condition to determine the most appropriate type of RHA filler and injection technique
- Application of a local anesthetic or numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the injections
- Precise injection of the chosen RHA filler into the targeted treatment area, using a fine needle or cannula
- Gentle facial massage to ensure even distribution of the filler and optimal results
- Post-treatment care instructions and follow-up appointment scheduling
Recovery and Aftercare for RHA Fillers
Recovery from RHA fillers treatment is generally minimal, with most patients returning to their daily activities shortly after the procedure. Some common post-treatment side effects include swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection site, which typically subside within a few days. To minimize discomfort and promote a smooth recovery, patients are advised to:
- Apply ice packs to the treated area as needed for the first 24-48 hours
- Avoid intense exercise, prolonged sun or heat exposure, and alcohol during the first 24 hours
- Refrain from touching or massaging the treated area for a few days to prevent filler displacement
- Follow any additional aftercare instructions provided by their treatment provider
While the results of RHA fillers are immediate, it may take up to two weeks for the full effects to become visible as swelling and bruising subside. Touch-up treatments may be considered 2 to 4 weeks after the initial injections to ensure optimal results.
RHA Fillers – Cost
The cost of RHA filler treatment at The Naderi Center varies will depend on which RHA filler is used and the amount of filler needed to achieve desired results. Discussing your budget and desired outcome with your provider during the initial consultation is important to determine the most suitable treatment plan. While RHA fillers may have a higher price point than some other dermal fillers, their long-lasting and natural-looking results can provide patients with a greater overall value.
Achieve Natural-Looking Results with RHA Fillers
The resilient hyaluronic acid in RHA fillers appears like the natural hyaluronic acid found in the skin, allowing for smooth integration with the surrounding tissue. Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, RHA fillers adapt to your facial expressions and movements, maintaining a natural appearance even when you smile, frown, or make other facial expressions. This unique characteristic ensures a more natural-looking appearance both at rest and during facial expressions.
